Oh For Keepsake!

1629 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 32 comments »

Its that time of year again: HOLIDAY PROJECT TIME! So this year, I decided to make a few little keepsake boxes, thanks to some advice from The Great WOODini. I also took inspiration from a box Nicole keeps on her nightstand and developed a new design that is much more practical for the average woodworker to make. The boxes feature a secret locking pin. Once removed, the lid slides off on a sliding dovetail. And as always with these holiday gift projects, you can modify them by trying diffe...

Box Building #3: Photography Light Box

978 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

I posted one of my boxes earlier in the week and promised I would blog my light box.If you have researched this you will know I obviously did not come up with this idea. In fact, I think there are others on Ljs. This is simply my version. I am a woodworker, not a photographer, so take all this with a grain of salt. As I develop the box further, I will add to the blog. I have not done anything yet I didn’t tweak over time, so why change now, huh! It’s called design evolution, not f...

Piece Size – Critical – and - Not Critical

2008 days ago by WoodMosaics | 4 comments »

The size doesn’t really mater, they just have to all be the same AND they have to match up with the triangle and any pieces of another size you may use along with them. The reason I go with .734 or 47/64” is some of the boards I was getting were just under ¾”. I cut the strips off the edge of a board and from those strips, I cut my pieces, so I want to be able to then get the strip to the right width, and if it starts out to narrow, I can’t. Now when I use the half size pieces with the re...

more boxes #5: I have been experimenting with Martyn's EZMitre technizue

709 days ago by Chris Cook | 13 comments »

I have made three boxes, in different stages now, using the EZMitre technique. I have to say these are the best mitres I have ever cut. Careful measurement is key, but it’s a very repeatable process. I’ll post the finished products once completed.

Tool tote travel #3: finger joints on a template / jig.

1265 days ago by mafe | 14 comments »

Tool tote travel 3finger joints on a template / jig This is third part of the tool tote travel. Now I have cut dovetails by hand, so it’s time to play with machines again…This time some finger joints, since it’s a learning experience. I bought some years ago a router template for finger joints, and half blind dovetails.I paid 100$ on a sale and never opened the box… So now it was time! I found a 10 mm router bit as the set needed, and made a test cut on some plywood… O...

Plane Restorations #1: Stanley No. 45 Boxes Reproduction Graphics

555 days ago by grfrazee | 6 comments »

I bought a No. 45, but the cutters did not come with the boxes that were included at the original purchase, all those decades ago. Not wanting to spend a large amount of money for real boxes, I’ve opted to make my own reproductions. However, I wanted them to be as close to the original versions as possible. The astute reader will note that the No. 45 cutter boxes had graphics on them displaying the contents of each box. These tend to get destroyed over time and are very rare to be...

Rance's References

This is an online collection of my own woodworking references(& links), both from LJ as well as elsewhere. Many times I want to give someone a link but I don’t seem to have it handy. I’m hoping I can refer back to this to find a particular link and pass it on when the need arises. Feel free to use this in any way you wish. As time goes on, it will be more useful. You might even find it helpful.     PROJECTS/TECHNIQUES: BOXES” Resawing and Grai...

Box Building #2: New Website

995 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 13 comments »

I have been busy lately, not only building boxes, but beginning to try and market them. I just opened my website throuh Volusion. http://www.volusion.com/ After checking out several companies like them, I thought they fit my needs the best. You can set up to take credit cards through them, so it is pretty much one stop shopping. The template I chose is free, but they offer upgrades if you want. Then they charge a monthly fee. That varies according to the plan you choose. Check it out...

Intarsia and beautiful boxes question

1242 days ago by rivergirl | 10 comments »

A friend of mine builds the most incredible intarsia projects and inlaid boxes similar to the really good stuff on L/J. He also builds rather large train cars- they are inlaid and really fancy.- super high quality craftsmanship. My question is, other than ebay and perhaps etsy.com, do you builders use any other online sites to sell these types of items? My friend just lost his job and needs to try and make some money to pay household expenses. Thanks so much!
